The EU does trade deals across the world.
It is now negotiating with Japan, China, Canada and most important of all, the USA.
A trade deal with the US could be worth at least £4bn a year to the UK, perhaps as much as £10bn.
We would be outside all these deals?
If the UK leaves the EU we would have to negotiate with each of them and with each of the EU member states on our own … with far less clout.
